Home Prices 

If you're not working or well versed in the real estate world you could fall prey to overpaying when buying a new house. It's common for homeowners to overestimate and set the price of their home much higher than what it's actually worth. Because they have the ability to set the price at their discretion, you have to have a keen eye to know when the price is simply too high. Having Balboa Realty real estate agents on your side will prevent you from being taking advantage of and we will be able to verify the price you should be paying for a new house.


The real estate market is small and it's important to find a real estate company with an all star respectable reputation like Balboa Realty. We have been in the business since 2007 and we have expertise to know how to negotiate. Our agents know exactly how to negotiate with all of our clients and with the seller's agents. We know how to talk the talk and walk the real estate walk so let us help you with all your real estate needs today!


Inspection Process

When a house is put up for sale it is required to go through an inspection process. This is a very important step because this is when a third party inspector goes through the inside and outside of the home and documents all current and potential problems. Interpreting a home inspection can be extremely difficult to understand especially if the list can contain more than 50 points of concern. Our expert real estate agents will scour these inspection reports and highlight the important problems and know which ones aren't a big deal. These problems then become leverage for negotiation.

Finding a Dream Neighborhood

Even if you are a real estate guru, if you aren't familiar with the neighborhood you are shopping in, you might wind up in a sticky situation. Picking the right neighborhood that fits all of your needs is extremely important for the now and for the future if you choose to sell your home later down the line. Our knowledgeable real estate agents know all of the neighborhoods of Orange County from property taxes, school districts, traffic information, nightlife and much more.
